India will today consider the approval of the Russian Sputnik V vaccine. The application was submitted by a local pharmaceutical company that cooperates with the Russian Direct Investment Fund, reports MIR 24 TV channel correspondent Ivan Gorbatov.
Vaccination continues in the regions of Russia. About 218 thousand inhabitants have been vaccinated in St. Petersburg. Vaccination centers have opened in four shopping centers today. These are premises with rooms for examination and vaccination. Here the drug can be obtained free of charge, on a first-come, first-served basis. Points will work in the same way as a shopping center. The first patients have already appreciated how convenient it is.
“I study at the university, it's close, I learned about the item from friends. It's convenient, you don't need to make an appointment like in a clinic. I ran along the way and that's it,”said Ekaterina Sidorova, a resident of St. Petersburg.
Vaccination continues in the armed forces of the Russian Federation. So, the drug was received by the servicemen of the orchestra of the 150th Idritsko-Berlin Order of Kutuzov of the II degree of the motorized rifle division. These soldiers will take part in the Victory Day parades in two cities: Rostov-on-Don and Novocherkassk.
Sputnik V is now actively supplied abroad. Mexico received 200 thousand doses. The Swiss media called the Russian drug for its benefits Russia's "export hit".
